It seems that Tesla has had critics since the day it came out of stealth — or before that. Even CEO and co-founder Elon Musk didn’t expect the company to succeed. He simply poured his money into it on the slim chance that it would succeed, and would thus help humanity to avert tremendous climate [&hellip
We won’t have US sales figures for Tesla, Ford, and GM for another month — and even then we’ll have to estimate how they were split out across the quarter — but we know one thing for sure: Tesla’s sales are up heavily compared to the same period in 2018. For other automakers, not so much
The Dutch plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market had another positive sales month in April, with 2,520 plug-in vehicle registrations, up 150% year over year (YoY).

It’s time for another monthly checkup on US auto sales. Surprisingly, more than a million people are still buying the 21st century equivalent of horses every month.

Sales of cars with electric motors accounted for more than 7% of BMW sales in the US in October. That’s good but down from last year. The Chevy Bolt and Nissan LEAF are limping along. The big news is the Tesla Model 3, which is taking America by storm.
KUALA LUMPUR: Palm oil producers are urging the government to reconsider and review the Sales Tax (Rates of Tax) Order 2018 on fresh fruit bunches (FFB) as the industry is already burdened by cesses, …
While Norway is setting new EV sales, the Chevy Bolt was down more than 40% last month. Could the Tesla Model 3 have anything to do with that drop?
Tesla’s vehicle prices are aimed straight at the heart of luxury vehicles built and sold by the big German auto manufacturers. Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, and Audi have all been taken on very directly with Tesla’s vehicles. Surprisingly, they have yet to really respond with any vehicles that can fight back against the onslaught
